Although I can easily locate the information on who the owner of the vessel is, I don't have an email contact for him. If I did, I would contact him directly.

The next best thing, it seems to me, is to contact the brokerage, so I did. Here is their response:

"Hi Tao,

"There is no glossy varnish.Photos were taken on rainy day when decks were
wet.

"Thanks,

"Annie"

Hopefully, that will untwist everyone's knickers.

Tao, thanks for clearing up our collective wedgies! I guess it could be that the deck is just really, really clean. Maybe it dosn't have any of that grey colouration that we're all used to, thus giving it the appearence of being varnished when wet.

Awww, don't you know anything about the internet? Now we have nothing to argue over.

Next question then... how does one achieve that look? (just curious)

BTW, ten points to the guy who figured out it was wet by looking at the water. Great eye for detail.

If you look in the specifications it states that the decks are gloss varnished with Goldspar and spar varnish. The pictures of the unvarnished deck must have been shot before the varnish.

uh oh! The debate continues. It did look too glossy for just a wet deck, too much of caramelly colour too.

Actually, it doesn't. Here it is:

HULL & DECK
  • White topsides, original gelcoat in excellent condition, Dark blue bootstripe, red bottom (Micron 44 ablative bottom paint was applied on a recent epoxied bottom).
  • White trunk cabin and top.
  • Gold leaf cove stripe, name, and hail port.
  • Gloss varnished exterior teak (Goldspar & Schooner varnish).
  • Solid hand laid fiberglass hull, reinforced with additional laminations in all stress areas.
  • Deck with a balsa core stiffeners, is set in a 6 molded hull flange, fiberglassed and bolted, to form a permanent hull/deck joint.
  • Custom teak deck approximately 5/8 thick, is recessed/inlaid into fiberglass deck using mostly glue, screws, not going through the fiberglass completely (unlike most teak decks which have larger screws), (the only B-40 teak deck ever done in this manner).
  • A complete teak deck reseam was done in 2006; the deck is in excellent condition.
  • External lead keel, fastened with S/S bolts.
  • Bronze centerboard is operated by a worm gear with override in case of grounding.
  • Teak rubrail with S/S half round.
  • Teak cockpit seat back coamings with S/S half round.
  • Internal copper/lightning grounding protection.
  • S/S polished stem head with anchor roller.
  • S/S bow and stern pulpits.
  • S/S stanchions with double lifelines and gates.
  • Varnished teak toerails, trim, lazarettes, handrails, hatch trim and dorade boxes.
  • Large, chromed double dorades in teak dorade box with storage between.
  • Large single chromed dorade on foredeck (removable).
  • Two white translucent deck hatches with screens.
Your assumption that the mention of "Gloss varnished exterior teak (Goldspar & Schooner varnish)" means that everything made of teak on the vessel's exterior has been gloss varnished is, I believe, incorrect. The broker (presumably, the author of the listing specs) is referring to the brightwork, not the deck. Where the deck is discussed, there is no mention of varnishing same.
